It’s hoped work can start in spring on building a new community care development at Windlesford Green off Holmsley Lane. I’m pleased to have played my part to help bring it to Rothwell through setting up a local Rothwell extra care group and using my position as a Labour councillor to lobby senior councillors. Rothwell people deserve the latest innovations for their future care and this is the way forward for the future where people can live in their own place as well as receiving as much care and support as they need. We must also fight to keep Home Lea care home open, people should have a choice. It is much harder for me to do this now I’m not a councillor, but I will keep on fighting for the best for local people.
